Kindness In Small Amounts



Fridays excursion to the Army post was full of wonderful kindness. It started at the gate. The MP at the gate was in a good mood and friendly. It was nice to see someone that does not seem to be irritated doing their job

At Camp Forsyth Hospital Pharmacy Exchange they were all so very pleasant. It helped, I suppose, that it was very slow and I was the only customer. Still they could had been chit chatting and being slow to get you meds. Then I went to the post exchange to pick up a few item. Shoppers were very pleasant and saying excuse me. It just took me for surprise.  Most of the places I go anymore seem to have people who would just assume mow you down than excess themselves.It made for a nice shopping experience and I do not like shopping that much. It is mostly a get what I need and get out.

Then I went to the food court. The workers were right there taking orders and not messing around in that department. Then came out a manager who started bad mouthing an employee that was a no show and when she called her the employee told her that her husband had a 4 day weekend and will not be working. Really? Sometimes people just amaze me. First of all the I felt that the manager should not had done that especially in front of customers.She needed to be concerned about the food. The rice had hard uncooked rice although the other food was okay. The egg roll tasted like it had been frozen and got some freezer burn. That place is now off my to eat at places.  Too bad it made a little disappointment in my wonderful day.


The biggest act of kindness I really remember is when we were lost in Amsterdam. We had just visited Begijnhof and wanted to get back the main rail station. We were trying to follow the map and getting more and more confused. One man dressed in a suit and riding a bike stopped to ask if we needed assistance. I suppose we were looking rather pathetic at this point. He gave us general directions and then we got to a cross-road and were confused again. Mr. Gadget went int to ask in a cafe. They gave us information on getting on the tram stop right on the corner. We hopped on that tram and got to the main railroad station. It it was not for the kindness of those two strangers we may still be walking around in circles there. I discovered that some kiddos had been turning the street signs around. I see now in pictures they have street signs on buildings too. We must not be the only one.

Still it was nice that there were some many people with kindness on their agenda. Sometimes we forget about the little things and they are important. Maybe we should all look at our self first see our reflection.

When was the last time a stranger did something particularly kind, generous, or selfless for you? Tell us what happened!

Other post that centered on the question.
